TUES Jan 27th

More warm Wyoming winter weather to expect today!  Highs East of the Divide, like those seen yesterday, will peak well above their seasonal averages in a range of 50's, 60's and even 70's such as in Torrington in Southeast Wyoming.  With highs pressure built up over the region skies will persist to stay sunny and dry.  Casper can expect a highs reaching into the low 60's making for another day with potentially record breaking warmth across Central and Eastern areas of the state.

As we have become accustomed to in the Cowboy State these warm conditions will also come along with strong winds for many areas with High Wind Warnings taking effect this afternoon for areas along the I-80 and I-25 corridors in Southeastern Wyoming as winds gust into a range of 40-50 miles per hour.

Tonight:  Although certainly chilly, evening lows falling into the 20's, 30's and 40's will remain well above our averages for late January.  Casper will fall to a mild 38 degrees amid increasing chances of rainfall in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Wednesday:  An area of low pressure steering towards the state will leave Wednesday's forecast much cooler and cloudier than that seen today.  Highs will fall into the 30's and 40's under primarily overcast skies and areas of rain to rain/snow mix across much of the state.

Looking Ahead:  After Wednesday's rainy weather, highs will level out in the 30's and 40's to finish the week under clearing and drying skies.  Although cooler than today's warmth temperatures will continue their above average run even as we roll into next week.
